The Agriworks Manual Plate Meter is simple to use rising pasture meter for measuring Dry Matter in pastures. It has no electronic parts and the T handle design and removable plate also make the Agriworks Manual Folding Plate Meter easy to transport, store and carry between paddocks.
The hand-calibrated plastic or Aluminium plate produces highly repeatable results for accuracy that’s second only to cutting, drying and weighing pasture samples, a method that’s impractical on-farm. The result is a series of accurate measurements of grass height that also accounts for any variation in pasture density.
Two simple counters total the meter readings taken and count the number of individual readings, allowing quick and easy calculation of an average reading for each paddock.
A comprehensive instruction handbook is included with each Manual Folding Plate Meter. In addition, a Carry Bag and Electronic Conversion kit are available separately as optional extras
Instructions on how to convert rising plate pasture meter readings to pasture cover and pasture dry matter values can be found in the handbook. The recommended conversion for the UK is x 125 + 640 For more information on formulas go to the overview and formulas page
